Center for Applied Theatre

Applied theatre techniques offer engaging and creative ways to create spaces for dialogue, exploration, and learning.

Center for Applied Theatre workshops offer a unique amalgam of techniques from the Theatre of the Oppressed and The Virtues Project – enhanced by additional techniques – to invite participants to re-envision their world and actively rehearse the steps they would like to take toward that vision. Habitual ways of thinking and acting are reimagined dynamically through games, storytelling, image and play making, and active reflection. Participants engage in the creative processes of discovery and planning for actions to promote social justice and progressive change. No prior theatre experience is required.
